2003 Supercharged S62 M5 Conversion BMW E39 540i M-Sport Touring

For many BMW owners, the E39 540i Touring is the ultimate sport wagon, but the owner of this example took it to the next level with a full M5 conversion, starting with an S62 drivetrain swap and finishing the job with a real M5 gauge cluster, a working sport button, and full body modification including bumpers and trim – even the trunk pan was modified to fit theM5’s dual exhaust. A bevy of suspension upgrades were performed to handle the extra power, which was further increased with the addition of a supercharger kit!

On the inside, the dash was updated with a more modern iDrive infotainment system to keep the interior of this E39 as up-to-date as its performance. Despite even the newest E39 being over a decade old, most owners would be hard-pressed to give theirs up, and after seeing a clean example like this one, it’s easy for us to understand why!
